Length: 496 pages6 hours

Summary

Life isn’t fair. We all know that.

Bad things happen to good people. We feel alone and vulnerable. Things that should work fail. Families fall apart. We hear words we don’t want to hear. We lose people we care about. At times, we all struggle to go on. And yet... there is always hope.

In this book, 37 writers share more than 50 stories of hope with you.

Our writers have learned that no one is every truly alone. That, with a little help, we can enjoy life again. Find ways around obstacles. Forge new friendships. Become a closer-knit family. Go on in spite of loss. Start over. Dream new dreams.
